Vintage Lucite, Cotton Bead and Silverplated Chain Necklace.

Pale earthy eggshell colors make up this simple and pretty necklace. Vintage Lucite beads are strung on narrow chain, with a single pale orange vintage pressed cotton bead. Finished with a lobster clasp. Beads range in size from 1/4"-3/4" across, and chain is 18" long.

A note about cotton beads: These beautiful rare beads were made by compressing cotton into a very hard ball, and finishing the surface with color or shellac. The result is an extremely lightweight, durable bead that lasts well under normal wear. However, please take care not to get your jewelry wet, as they will absorb water and deteriorate.

Frequently asked questions about urbanlegend

Having trouble deciding on a necklace length? My most popular option is a 20 inch chain (approximately 50 cm). This length is comfortable for most people, and works well with either chunky or dainty beads.
Silverplated chain and bright sterling silver earrings will tend to tarnish over time, but can be easily cleaned with a soft polishing cloth. Immersing jewelry in a polishing solution is not recommended.
At this time, I am not able to do custom orders. However, if you see an item you like in my sold listings, I may be able to recreate it upon request.
All of my jewelry ships packaged in brown kraft packaging (either a pillow box or a square jewelry box, depending on size), and is closed with a ribbon, ready for gift-giving.
